Saturday DBR: Good Morning!

New, comments

When it rains, it pours.

Well... I'm not really sure how to start today off. I guess there's this.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Oklahoma Sooners Running Back Joe Mixon Could Be Facing Charges By Monday <a href="https://twitter.com/SBNationCFB">@SBNationCFB</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/SBNationCFB">@SBNationCFB</a> <a href="http://t.co/tTfjwePwlt">http://t.co/tTfjwePwlt</a></p>&mdash; CC Machine (@CCMachine) <a href="https://twitter.com/CCMachine/statuses/492905355698262017">July 26, 2014</a></blockquote>

If the DA sees fit to bring charges against Mixon, it's very bad news for the Oklahoma program. Mixon was a five star recruit from California who would have been a true freshman this fall and quite a few people had him down as a Big 12 Newcomer of the Year candidate.

Oh, and then there was this.

This all just really sucks, guys. Buckle in and hope we make it through the rest of this offseason unscathed.

Bears at Training Camp

NFL training camps are starting up across the nation, and several former Baylor players are working hard to make the final roster for their team. Jordan Najvar is working to make the cut with the Cowboys and talked to David Smoak yesterday.

Note: audio starts immediately when you hit the link. It startled me while I was writing.

What little I've found on Ahmad Dixon indicates that he is taking third string reps at safety with the Cowboys and making a name for himself at camp.

Tevin Reese seems to be doing quite well in San Diego. He's doing exactly what he did at Baylor: exploiting mismatches, taking advantage of his speed, tracking down deep balls, and catching them in full stride. I hope he makes the final cut.

Daily Bear Time

I'd never looked into sun bears much before last night. Upon seeing this picture, I became so glad that I did.
